If you are a San Francisco Giants fan, you have plenty to be worried about. In fact, you better prepare to get the blues. Though the World Series trophy was hoisted high in the City by the Bay, it could very well come to the City of Angeles in 2013. Last weekend the Los Angeles Dodgers signed former Cy Young winner Zack Greinke, and Korean sensation Hyun-Jin Ryu for a combined cost of $225 million. With a solid rotation that includes Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, former Red Sox World Series winner Josh Beckett and veterans Chad Billingsly and Ted Lilly, the Dodgers have the strongest rotation...

Remember when the Yankees completely missed the playoffs in 2008 in the last year at old Yankee Stadium? (Ironically resulting in Tampa Bay going to the World Series.) Well, this is actually worst than that.
Thursday night, the Yanks found themselves on the zero-end of a 4-0 sweep by the Detroit Tigers. And somewhere tonight, George Steinbrenner is screaming at the club he owned and built to win seven World Series titles during his time as the principle owner.
However, it's not the fact that they lost, but how bad they looked while losing night, after night, after night... after... Read More
For the team with a payroll just north of $200 million, it's a little hard to believe that the Yankees have more big names on their roster compared to hits. Let alone runs scored.
But thus is the case with the Bronx Bombers, who managed to scrap together a measley four-hit effort in Sunday's 3-0 ALCS Game two loss to the Detroit Tigers, which can only leave the question to one Yankee, let alone baseball fan... what the hell is going on with the Yanks?
It's completely irritating that a lineup that goes (in order) Ichiro, Cano, Teixiera, Ibanez, Martin, Rodriguez, Granderson, Swisher... Read More
Stevens spent 20 years playing, coaching and managing professional baseball, much of it in the Pacific Coast League, but he is best remembered as the player who delivered the first major league hit off pitching legend Satchel Paige. He is the President of the Professional Baseball Players’ Association, a group that helps former professional baseball players in need. With the St. Louis Browns, Stevens appeared in four games and went 2-for-13 (.154) with two runs and two RBI before entering World War II. He rejoined the Browns after being discharged before the 1946 season, appearing in 122 games... Read More
Bobby Doerr played his entire 14-year baseball career for the Boston Red Sox from 1937 to 1951. The second baseman led the American League in double plays five times; in putouts and fielding percentage four times each, and in assists three times. He held the major league record for career double plays at second base (1,507) until Nellie Fox surpassed his mark in 1963, and his career fielding percentage (.980) was a major league record until Red Schoendienst broke it in 1953. Doerr also ended his career ranking fifth in career games (1,852), putouts (4,928) and total chances (10,852) at second... Read More
Roger Clemens may have just experienced the most important "win" of his life today. Proscecutors "struck out" on all counts when a jury returned a verdict in favor of the former pitcher. The jury found Clemens not guilty on all charges of lying to Congress about using performance-enhancing drugs, CBS news reports .
The verdict came after 10 hours of deliberation and is the end of a 10-week trial. The trial was preceeded by a five-year investigation. Clemens has been one of Major League Baseballs most dominant players and is the holder of 7 Cy Young Awards.
Clemens, was... Read More
We’ve all seen or know about Joe Carter’s game-winning home run against Philadelphia in the 1993 World Series that gave Toronto it’s second straight title, we’ve all seen or heard about Reggie Jackson’s three-home run performance in the 1977 World Series, and most have heard about Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series.
Well, for those who have not watched the 2011 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers, baseball’s 107th championship series has had just about all of that, and then some.
In case you missed it, Albert Pujols became just the... Read More
